Seasonal Flow is a yoga class designed to help you work with the energy of the season for optimal health. Over the last few generations we have become increasingly isolated from what is happening within the cycles of nature and as a result our ability to heal ourselves from any dis-ease has become lost among the stresses of modern-day living.

In these classes we use the methods of the ancient and wise traditions of Hatha yoga,  Ayurveda and Chinese medicine to help us understand how we can stay vibrant and healthy and in balance throughout the year. The result is that we become not only resilient, but also adaptable to whatever the weather, whatever the season, whatever the cycle of life you are in, whatever life throws at you! 

'Whoever wishes to investigate medicine should proceed thus: In the first place, consider the seasons of the year and what effect each of them produces' ...HIPPOCRATES

We practice postures (asanas), breath work (pranayama) and meditation to help us unravel habitual tensions and tune into what we need to bring balance to our daily lives. 

We will be using these very practical tools and creative sequencing to cultivate strength, flexibility, light and focus for the body, mind and soul. The overall effect will help you to feel a sense of harmony, peacefulness and good health as we flow together through the seasons of the year.
